Palo Santo Benefits FOR MEDICINAL Health Purposes~ Cancer Treatment~ anxiety~ Pain Reliever

Palo Santo oil has been found to contains cancer-fighting compounds that lower oxidative stress and protect cells. Its protective phytochemicals seem capable of helping to stop disease formation within the digestive, endocrine, cardiovascular and nervous systems.

What Is Palo Santo?

Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens), also known as “holy wood” or “wood of the saints,” describes a group of trees that produce a powerful essential oil known for stimulating the immune system, fighting inflammation and relieving pain are just a few health benefits.

The Palo Santo tree belongs to the same botanical family (Burseraceae) as frankincense ( when inhaled, frankincense oil been shown to reduce heart rate and high blood pressure. It has anti-anxiety and depression-reducing abilities, but unlike prescription medications, it does not have negative side effects or cause unwanted drowsiness ) and myrrh trees, which also produce beneficial antioxidant-rich oils that are used around the world and has been widely used in folk medicines and by shamans (“medicine men”) for centuries.

The essential oil of Palo Santo found in the trunk of the trees, is responsible for the unique fragrance of this wood, and contains resins that are rich in the sesquiterpene class of compounds, most notably limonene. It also contains the fragrant compounds non-amine and germacrene. In one published Cuban medical study, components in the essential oil inhibited the growth of a specific type of breast cancer, MCF-7. Palo Santo essential oil is significantly anti-bacterial, which probably explains its traditional use as an incense wood for dispelling bad energy, ease allergy symptoms, stimulate circulation in ones body and home, air purification and promote sleep.

When smoked as incense, this is called “smudging” using both Palo Santo & Sage. You will find that it leaves a room smelling clean and free of any musty odors, the air in the room will feel lighter while increasing air circulation and purification throughout your home..

Cleanse Your Home Of Old Energy

While this might sound dubiously mystical, the invisible negative or heavy energy that can be felt in a home is real.

To make a space truly feel like one’s own, it’s important to cleanse the old energy out and bring in positive new energy. To encourage psychic detox, to raise one’s energy level, and for purification of stale energies in preparation for fresh intentions.”

Each home is different depending on the circumstances of the previous owners, present owners, and the home itself. Taking in size of the home, attic and or basement, how many occupants and their ages.

If there was a traumatic event like a difficult divorce, death, sadness, or present emotional trauma, heavy energy like this can require frequent cleansings.

Palo Santo & Sage isn’t just useful for cleansing spaces, they can also cleanse a person’s aura of stagnant energies, or any turmoil in your life as you prepare to embark on new ventures with positive vibrations.

Simply cleansing a home a single time isn’t enough. Maintenance is essential. “Being selective of whose energy you let into your space, and being mindful of your own habits. Keep your vibe high by complaining less, refraining from gossip, and keeping an open, grateful heart.” Amanda Lauren
